Ingredients

4 x 200g Beef blade steaks, trimmed

1 cup Fresh pineapple, cored and roughly chopped

2 cloves Garlic, peeled

¼ cup Peanuts

1 tbsp Smoked paprika

2 tbsp Sunflower oil

1 Broccoli head, cut into florets

Spiced beans

1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil

1 clove Garlic, sliced

1 Red capsicum, sliced

1 x 400g can Cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

1-2 tbsp Lemon juice

1 tsp Smoked paprika

¼ cup Chopped flat-leaf parsley

Method

  • Place the blade steaks on a tray while you make the marinade.
  • Place the pineapple, garlic, peanuts, paprika and 1 tablespoon of oil into a blender or food processor, and blend to a smooth paste. Spoon half the marinade over the steaks and marinate for 30 minutes in the fridge. Reserve the remaining marinade for serving.
  • Blanch broccoli in boiling water for 1 minute, then refresh in iced water. Drain and char grill for 1-2 minutes on each side.
  • For spiced beans, heat the oil in a frying pan over low-medium heat and cook the garlic for around 1 minute, until fragrant but not brown. Add the capsicum and cook for 2-3 minutes, and then add the beans, lemon juice and paprika and toss to warm through. Season to taste and fold the parsley through before serving.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large frying pan and cook the steaks for 3 minutes each side for medium. The mixture will catch a little in the pan, but it makes a delicious crust on the beef.

Tips

  • For a more textural marinade, finely chop the ingredients or pound them in a mortar and pestle.
  • To save time, drain a tin of pineapple instead of using a fresh one.
  • Try swapping the blade steaks for rump, sirloin or veal schnitzels.
